Qatar plans to invest in the development of southern ports of Iran to help expand economic cooperation and increase bilateral trade

Ports and Maritime Bureau of Bushehr Province has formed a special committee to address challenges hindering expansion of trade between Qatar and the Iranian province, the caretaker of the state body said. 
“As exporters to Qatar mainly encounter problems associated with sea transportation, the bureau has set up the committee that will hold regular meetings to address these challenges,” the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development’s news outlet also quoted Nourollah Asadi as saying on Monday.
A delegation of high-ranking officials from Qatar Ports Management Company paid a visit to Iran’s southern ports last month and met their Iranian counterparts, visiting Bushehr, Khorramshahr, Bandar Imam Khomeini and Shahid Rajaee ports.
Mohammad Al-Khanji, the director of Qatar Ports Management Company, told a press conference in Bushehr during the visit that Qatar plans to invest in the development of Iran’s southern ports to help expand economic cooperation and increase bilateral trade.
“Qatar has long-term plans to increase trade ties with Iran and invest in its southern ports, which have an economic advantage for both countries … We firmly seek expansion of bilateral relations and nothing can change our strategic decision for expanding ties with Iran,” he said.
